New York Comic Con

_MG_0232 - Version 2
Yesterday I attended my first Comicbook Convention in about 15 years. I’ve been a regular reader of comics since I was 7, but the whole con thing died out for a while in New York and I never picked it up again after they started showing up again.
I totally forgot how crazy they can get. I led an expedition into the madness with Tammi and our niece and nephew in tow. We met up with Jason, who has kept up with the scene and waded through the hordes of costumed geekery for a few hours.
At this point, I’m not up for standing in line to get autographs or to check out creator panels and such, so we mostly wandered from one end of the show floor to the other, shopped a little and peeped some previews od video games that our nephew was very excited to see.
The costumed folks provided great photo subjects, and I took quite a few shots, although many of the good ones were obscured by the many many people there. The (mostly) good stuff is posted on Flickr, as usual.
